HKS Architects renovates Lowcountry-inspired Montage Palmetto Bluff

Already, the property debuted Montage Palmetto Bluff residences designed by local firm Pearce Scott Architects.

The Montage Palmetto Bluff resort in Bluffton, S.C., is scheduled to complete its expansion this September, which will see the property refurbish all 150 guestrooms, as well as add a new inn.

The full overhaul — which marks the property’s launch into the Montage brand as its first East Coast location — will also increase the resort’s amenities to six onsite eateries, two wedding chapels, four boutique stores, two fitness centers and 16,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

Designed by Dallas-based HKS Architects, the resort’s new 74-room inn will have a lobby lounge and an octagon bar with lagoon views. The 13,000-square-foot Spa Montage will have a salon, fitness center and movement studio. There will also be a new steakhouse.

Already, the property debuted a number of the 35 Montage Palmetto Bluff residences. Designed by local firm Pearce Scott Architects, the single-family homes vary in size from 2,200 square feet to 4,200 square feet, and they have two to five bedrooms. With Lowcountry-inspired architecture, the homes have open sitting rooms, porches and fireplaces. Owners will have access to the Montage Palmetto Bluff’s amenities, including 32 miles of waterfront, croquet, bocce and tennis facilities, as well as the May River Golf Club.
